Elizabeth Warren
It's a really interesting book about how our perceptions about people, we don't know, for example, when somebody is surprised or when someone is upset, are based on us and not on reality. And he puts together all these different studies from different areas in order to tell stories about what's gone wrong when strangers talk to each other.
